The Colonel Twilight bark sequence. Animation production cel for 101 Dalmations, 1961. 254x305 mm; 10x12 inches, matted and framed to 16x17 3/4 inches.

This is a large image animation production cel of old sheepdog the Colonel from the classic Disney animated feature 101 Dalmations (1961). The cel was used in the memorable "Twilight Bark" sequence, with matching scene appearing at the 38 minute 54 second mark, when the Colonel learns that Towser the bloodhound is barking an "alert" and says "Well, I'll see what he wants," and barks his first reply.

This cel was apparently originally sold in the 1960s at the legendary Disneyland Art Corner store, as evidenced by the specific lithographic background used in the program's 101 Dalmations setups and the gold Art Corner label which has been attached to the back of the modern frame.

Condition: Paint appears without issues. Cel has some rippling, which has little effect on presentation. Cel has been framed with museum glass.
